Training Overview

Santosha’s Level 2 Yoga Teacher Training Certification is offered as a 25 day Intensive program or as two part-time courses, and is for those who are ready to take their foundational knowledge to the next level. This is a 500 hour course (which, added to your existing 200hr teacher training will qualify you for RYT500 with Yoga Alliance).

Santosha Yoga’s Level 2 500hr Teacher Training course is designed to help you achieve praadhiita (“advanced in studies”). This course is a wonderful opportunity to develop not only as a yoga teacher, but also as a human being embodying yogic principles in your everyday life.

The Level 2 Yoga Teacher Training course initiates your further growth from the foundations that you discovered in the Level One course, delving deeper into the essence and teachings of yoga. We feel that progress in Yoga goes far beyond the physical and must include the awakening of deeper levels of seeing and insight as well as the attunement to the subtler messages of the body’s intelligence.

The course offers deep insight into the following five key learning areas:

  • Techniques Training / Practice
  • Teaching Methodology
  • Applied Anatomy and Physiology
  • Yoga Philosophy / Lifestyle and Ethics for Yoga Teachers
  • Teaching Practicum

The course offers a comprehensive, intensive and practical training in how to teach yoga on a level that extends from the 200hr + further refines your practice so you may come to a deeper knowledge of Yoga.

The journey of a yogi is a path that allows us to be perpetual students, whether teaching or not. If we are truly following the eight Limb path then we must adhere to the fist two limbs, being Yama and Niyama – the ethical precepts set forth in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Yama and Niyama are the foundation of our practice without which no spiritual progress along the path of yoga can be made. Many people come to yoga initially as a physical exercise and only later begin to understand the profound spiritual effect it has on our lives. But to establish these spiritual effects firmly upon our mindstream, to embed them within our consciousness, they must be grounded on the bedrock of ethical behavior.

Our practice begins with Yama and Niyama, and extends into asana and the other limbs of yoga. Therefore – a teacher or one who is on a deeper path must engage in ongoing study, Brahmacharya as set forth in Patanjalis yoga Sutras, as well as cultivate growth in his or her daily practice. Yoga retreats and workshops, away from your daily routines, are also beneficial because you have time to focus, you can learn new concepts or practices and you have time to focus if you are taken out of life’s daily chores.

The deeper we understand who we are, the more our light will shine for others. All of Santosha’s teachers take time to study, to be inspired, and to grow. Studying allows an individual to stay connected to the teachings, and continue to be open and to maintain a beginners mind.

Even if you do not teach, allowing time to look within, in a focused way, is the key to growth. With this in mind, Santosha will offer a variety of courses including the Level Two 500 Hour YTT to allow those spiritual seekers to travel within in supportive knowledgeable settings.

Who is it For?

All that we require is that each individual truly desires to; initiate their yoga journey or deepen their own knowledge and practice, connect to your true inner self and perhaps share this knowledge with others. Santosha believes that when we are guided towards seeking a yogic path and lifestyle, then this time is the perfect time, so accordingly we do not have age restrictions.
If you have been practicing Yoga, you are not required to have been practicing Ashtanga, Hatha, Iyengar, Vinyasa Flow or know any specific sequences, only that you have been practicing some form of Yoga. If you are about to embark upon your journey then let us guide you with wisdom and support.
The course offers a comprehensive, intensive and practical training in how to teach yoga on a level that extends from the 200hr + further refines your practice so you may come to a deeper knowledge of Yoga.

Santosha’s Level Two YTT is open to students of all levels, including:

  • Graduates of Santosha’s Level One, 200 hr YTT
  • Graduates of other Level One 200hr YTTs.

Students who have not completed any type of training course but have a genuine interest in the subject matter. This level of course requires maturity and commitment. For these students the courses will not be credited toward the 500-hour level, but they will serve to deepen growth and understanding.

What You will Personally Get From The Training

The Santosha YTT 400 – hour – training has practical value (i.e., increasing one’s teaching qualification), but their real purpose is to bring the student deeper in their understanding of yoga, (and therefore their own lives), through direct personal experience and practical knowledge.
The Level 2 500hr allows each individual to experience the true essence of Yoga through a unique and holistic synthesis of ageless wisdom of ancient scriptures and philosophy applied in a contemporary context.
